Title: How to Begin Your Machine Learning and Data Science Journey
Organizations of all sizes, and across all sectors, have started leveraging data science practices to streamline their processes, improve decision making, and increase sales. But as organizations consider adopting data science practices, many are left with more questions than answers.
- When am I ready?
- What data should I collect?
- Who do I need to hire?
- What tools do I need?
In this introductory presentation, Cybera’s data science team will provide an overview of what you need to start a data science project, provide examples of local companies' data science journey, and discuss the data science development lifecycle using real-world examples.
This workshop is geared towards individuals in the manufacturing sector who are aware of data science and machine learning practices, and are looking to gain more knowledge of how to adopt and leverage them.
Attendees will leave this workshop with a better understanding of how to set the framework for a successful data science project.
